Ok...really stoked about this one. This pours a thick hazy orange color that's even throughout. A little bit of off white head shows up but does not stick around at all. The Carbonation looks light. The smell is honey, honey, and more honey. I can smell it at an arm's length. A really strong honey aroma with a bit of a light grassy smell and a very nice wheat malt profile that's also sweet.
Glug glug glug
This tastes of sweet honey with a bit of ripe fruits under it and a slight hay taste, but mostly lots of honey. The alcohol taste comes through a little bit on the tail end and I want to say there are some floral hops in this, but only just a little bit. The overall taste is good but the mouth feel is way thick and this might become cloying after a bit.

2.49/5 rDev -33.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.25
Appearance: Slight haze on a burnt orange color. No head, no carbonation, nothing.
Smell: Sweet caramelized malt and enough honey to kill a bear. A touch of biscuit malt. Deeply cooked malt sugar. Very faint touch of citrus from the hops. Crazy sweet with toffee, brown sugar, and raw sugar. Crazy amounts of honey. Some orange flesh. Slight hint of wheat with some solid alcohol. A hint of alcohol spice as well.
Taste: Honey and a ton of cooked and caramelized malts. Runs caramel, toffee, brown sugar, and raw sugar. It's sweet and then some and the honey layers over it. Aggressively sweet, but not too overbearing. Warming changes all of that. Concentrated raw sugar with a tiny hint of roasted malt. Honey jelly. Faint vestiges of wheat and caramel malt.
Mouthfeel: Medium body. Smooth and slick. Negligible carbonation. Clean, surprisingly.
Overall: The Hulk is now a diabetic.
Fresh, this came with a does of insulin. Aged, it's early onset.
